Between the probable and the possible I watch the Possible because it's everything. The Probable fits into a lunch bag of the expected and the Possible is huge, as big as everything. The Possible needs a big bag, a box, a room. You need to move the Possible outdoors, into a meadow big enough to not hold it. Possible says it could happen, and I'm left to try. What would I try if I couldn't fail? Bring it to the Possible meadow. You won't find everyone there. Your mom will remind you to take a sweater - it gets cold in the meadow at night - and she will suggest you carry a bag of Probable with you, just in case. Just in case things don't work out with the Possible, and you need cab fare home. You never know, Mom says, hoping the meadow grass will feed your heart but suspecting you'll need the bag.
